SynopsisThe remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to fix a critical security issue.
- Incorrect strncpy usage in the network listening part of the iscsi target driver could have been used by remote attackers to crash the kernel or execute code.
This required the iscsi target running on the machine and the attacker able to make a network connection to it (aka not filtered by firewalls).
SolutionApply SAT patch number 7763 / 7766 / 7767 as appropriate.
